New Pots!

I want to thank everyone for being so kind after my last post, about depression. I won't say I'm over it - though I wish I could - but some days are better than others. Today didn't suck. Most of it, anyway.

Yesterday I took a U-Haul (did I mention my car died a couple of weeks ago?) to collect up my pots and shelves from the pop-up Holiday Pottery Shop in Gardiner, which closed on December 24th. The shop did okay but the weather was against us; we lost a couple of weekend days, and the last three shopping days before Christmas due to storms and poor conditions. And it was a shorter retail season to begin with. A thing I noticed: people were buying smaller things: ornaments, magnets, pendants, like that. Next yer I will keep it in mind. Also, non-pottery items seemed to do well. Next year I will have soap.

As an aside, I think the soap is finally at a level that I would feel okay selling it. When the newest batch - Cocoa Loco - is ready, I'll post some bars for sale.

Anyway. I still have lots of pots left, and pretty good ones if I do say so myself, so I photographed a few to refresh the website. Today was one of those winter days when it never quite gets light, so the pics were pretty dark - I had to lift them using Picasa. They are still accurate, color-wise, but not the best photos I ever took:

LOVE your butter dishes!

Glad to hear the fog lifts from time to time....if I didn't get days where there was much light, I would never get out of bed. Not good for us creative spirits. I was once told that if I thought I was in Hell I needed to "keep walking" until I was out of it. Have used that a lot over the years. Keep walking Lori! Take care.

Mighty fine butter dishes. The glazes look delicious.
I love your fun style and uplifting glaze colors.
I can't wait until you're ready to start selling your soaps.

Hope tomorrow is good day :)
